The Novation Impulse 61 USB MIDI Controller Keyboard comes from a line of professional USB MIDI controllers made exclusively by Novation. Impulse has 8 back-lit drum pads which can warp arpeggios, roll beats and launch clips in Ableton Live. The Impulse 61 controller keyboard has a precision keyboard and a full control surface powered by Automap 4 control software. Automap 4 makes getting hands-on with your DAW/plug-ins fast and simple.
Novation worked with all the major DAW and plug-in manufacturers to make sure the Impulse 61 controller keyboard gives you the instant mixer control, transport controls and plug-in instruments, and effects that you need. The full control surface bypasses all of the confusing knobs, faders and buttons that many MIDI controllers have and gives you Automap control software instead. Automap gives you intuitive and instant mapping to everything you need to control right from your Impulse 61!
Ableton Live gives you the power to do things that other drums can’t. The 8 drum pads can launch clips in Live and show you what's going on based on its color. The three colors tell you if a clip is playing (green), loaded (yellow) or recording (red) making Impulse the best controller keyboard for Ableton Live.
The precision keyboard on the Impulse 49 can be called the "player's" keyboard. It was designed to feel like an instrument rather than a computer peripheral. It has semi-weighted with assignable aftertouch with exceedingly accurate expression. Bottom line - the Impulse 61 controller keyboard gives you everything you need to keep your music and creative juices flowing.
